Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. If your mortgage company improperly overpaid your taxes and is refusing to help you, you can bring a lawsuit against them to recover the overpaid amounts. What you should do is check your mortgage agreement to determine what actions they and you are required to take to initiate a lawsuit or what it says regarding the overpayment of taxes. If they are not following this agreement, you can also sue for breach of contract.
Most likely you would be able to bring this claim in small claims court depending on how much the taxes are. However, there could be some provisions in your mortgage agreement which limits where you are permitted to bring a lawsuit.
If you want, I can offer an additional service of reviewing your mortgage agreement and determining whether or not they are breaching that agreement.
I hope this has been helpful. If so, please provide positive feedback!
